Don't Waste your Time on Training
By Martin Schaeferle | October 02, 2012
How many times have you heard people say, "I am definitely not going to waste my time going to that instructor led class" or "that self study training is a waste of time, not for me"? People learn in different ways and therefore there is never only one way to learn. Since I am in the IT learning business and have been for a long time, I have heard many companies talk about how they are the best, their video training is the best, they come out with cutting edge content the quickest, they have the best experts, yata, yata , yata. Make sure you assess what you need before buying developer training, or it may be a complete waste of your time.
- What is your learning style, how do you learn best? Do you learn by doing, or listening or watching?
- What is your budget for learning material?
- Do you want to use your learning material as reference material after you are done with the training?
- Are you interested in certification?
There are many questions you need to answer, and the best way to address them is to prioritize them and then select based upon that. In the end, I suggest you select training material that covers most, if not all, of your needs.
